Brooklyn actress Saoirse Ronan was expected to score a Golden Globe nomination on Thursday morning for best actress in a motion picture drama, but when Dennis Quaid read the list of stars cited in that category, Ronan’s name was absent. In its place, “Sheesha Ronan,” and meme infamy.

The Irish actress’ name is pronounced “Seer-sha.” Quaid’s flub immediately went viral, and recalled a similar incident earlier this year when Cheryl Boone Isaacs mispronounced cinematographer Dick Pope as “Dick Poop” during the Academy Award nominations.

Check out reactions to Sheesha Ronan below.
